Re: Final Draft 9 update killed program

You know, that's the ONE THING I actually prefer Final Draft for. The fact that you can pull up the comments in a separate window and then sort and colour code them makes it easy when you're sending...

Re: Empire

I actually think it IS one of the best-written shows on TV. And that's up against some pretty stiff competition.

Re: Any Other Musician/Band Due For A BioPic?

Yeah. Tortured genius.

Paraphrasing a bit from a review of his sister's book about him, he seemed like Don McLean's Van Gogh: "This world was never meant for one. As beautiful as you."

Re: Any Other Musician/Band Due For A BioPic?

Not exhaustive and off the top of my head...

Nick Drake.
Bob Marley (evidently in dev.)
A warts-n-all Elvis?
Sex Pistols (Sid and Nancy was obviously mainly Sid.)
Bon Scott (evidently in...

That would make the absolute vast majority of submissions a Pass. Which is realistic, but probably not as (and, Jesus I hate using this word) "actionable" as a numerical system.

Re: Got a 3 rating from blklst...

You make some good points, but they possibly need it so they can figure out what makes it onto their coveted blast email.

Or are you proposing that Recommend would take care of that?

Re: Kubrick: Why keeps us invested, when characters don't control their fates?

Apart from FMJ, if those are "meh" then your "meh" is pretty different from mine.



That one I found pretty "meh".

Re: Dialogue

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-esque dialogue is VERY hard to do well. You've got cheesy, and then you've got knowingly nod-and-wink cheesy. That's a whole 'nuther level.

Again, it's very perilous to think...

Re: Dialogue

I don't think any genre can work without good dialogue. With the qualification that by "good" I mean "appropriate for the context and tone".

And I think you're absolutely on a fool's errand if you...

Re: My Black List Experiment Recap

I remember seeing a doco about that guy and thinking "what a great subject for a film".

Premise alone is a 10, according to me.

2) Drama. Betty had finally come to a...

Re: Black List Reader Gave Me A 5 - Now What?

I don't think that's right. Comedy is often disguised tragedy. If it doesn't reach us emotionally via arcs etc, there's often nothing to make us laugh.

Re: Vale Justified

So hard to narrow it down to one. If I had to, maybe Duffy.

Or Boyd.

Or Limehouse.

Or Quarles.

See what I mean?

Vale Justified

Some of the best writing ever on television. The villains were spectacular.

If you haven't done it, it's well worth the time.
